Cruises from Dover
Dover is the second busiest cruise port in the UK serving 200,000 cruise passengers a year. The Cruise Port facilities are located in Dover's Western Docks with two dedicated terminals. Cruise Terminal 1 opened in 1996 having been converted from a Victorian railway station and Cruise Terminal 2 in 2000, a sleek, modern building purpose-built cruise terminal providing every modern convenience.
Significant investment in recent years means Dover now has state of the art facilities, excellent modern transport links and award winning customer service. It has car parking for over 1100 cars, porters to assist with baggage handling, cafes and shuttle buses to both the town centre and historic castle.

Important: Dover Cruise Port will not be able to guarantee car parking spaces during peak months (July, August & September) to customers who have not pre-booked.
